Full Time Fridays

Do you know a General Studies Student or one in pursuit of a degree in General Studies? Have they considered the Full Time Fridays (ftf) program? Virginia Western's Full-Time Fridays (ftf) program allows students to earn an Associate of Science Degree in General Studies while balancing priorities to their work, families and life in general.  Full-Time Fridays will give students the opportunity to earn a General Studies degree in just two years through on-campus courses on Fridays, coupled with hybrid classes.

With Full-Time Fridays, students will be able to take all their courses from 8 a.m.- 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and still be able to manage obligations to their work, family and themselves. The typical course load of 60 credit hours will be spread over Fall and Spring semesters for two years.

FTF’s students enjoy the benefits of one on one personalized advising and a unique program that strives to help students reach their higher education goals.

Temporary Signs and Finishes / Permanent Signs

Adhesive and masking tape damages drywall, paint and door finishes causing costly repairs. Tape adhesive can chemically adhere to these finishes. Adhesive and masking tape also leaves residue on glass. Please use the following guidelines for any temporary signs needed. As a first choice use the existing public tack boards or doorway tack boards. As a second choice purchase large “post it pad” sheets or use the blue painters tape with light adhesive and use this only on glass surfaces. Brand name “Post-It” is recommended as its adhesive is less damaging. Even with these products, remove these temporary signs as soon as possible to avoid adhesive adhering by contact over time. Never use push pins on anything other than tack boards. If permanent signs in keeping with the established campus signage are needed contact FMS. Response for permanent signage requests will be dependent on budget constraints.
